How to create partition in a Ubuntu server

I'm trying to create partition during Ubuntu Server installation(12.10).Now I have a 500GB hard disk where I need to create a partition of 200GB for root file system and another 20GB for swap space and the remaining 280GB partition for storing backup files during upgradation.
I'm new to server installation,
How can I achieve the following:
1. I'm not familiar with RAID array partition and LVM partition. Which is better and how can I do partitioning using any of this.
2. Is there any link that can guide me in this partitioning.
3. How can I use this partition using command line.

Thanks in advance.

RAID only makes sense with multiple disks
so that you MIRROR (RAID1) or SPREAD (RAID0) or both (RAID10) your partition on two or more disks

you really need to start by understanding the basic blocks before trying to use them.

RAID is a really good feature of modern OSes but it requires redundancy of hardware to be enabled.
single disk installation will not do.

and search articles for LVM too.



partitioning, ubuntu 12.10
